Grants for worthwhile community projects are a big part of our mission. In 2015, the High Point Community Foundation made grants to 17 organizations or initiatives totaling $329,000.
The Foundation grants have three focus areas: 1) Education, 2) Food Security and 3) Community Cohesion.
If you have a program or event that benefits any of these areas, it may qualify for a grant, but you need to start the application process now to meet our August 17 deadline.
Examples of past grant recipients include Backpack Beginnings, a program to feed children on weekends, Go Far scholarships for athletic socks and running shoes, the Community Clinic of High Point, educational scholarships for Sisters of Charity of St. Vincent De Paul and youth nutritional education through community and school gardens, provided by the Guilford County Cooperative Extension Service.
